I hate the I-Command guages on my boat. Just too hard to read with my old eyes and the angle of the display. I beleive the Garmin displays, GMI 10, would be much easier to read being a bigger font and having color. Would I have swap out any sensors if I stick to standard NEMA 2000 protocol data.

Is Icommand Suzuki? I'm sure you can stick a GMI10 on the network but you may not have your engine alarms anymore. I would suggest adding one GMI10 to your network and see how you like it,

These are th BRP network guages and came with my E-TECS.
"The I-Command instrumentation uses a National Marine Electronics Association NMEA-2000™ standard for its underlying data communication protocols."

Same answer as above. Try one. It will certainly display lots of data, but may not be a 100% substitute.
